Tis the season for kissing under the mistletoe which means you better make sure your pearly whites are prepped and primed. I know I’m not alone on this! Even my kids know, “I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus” by heart!Read More
Last week I received a reader request to find chic, ankle booties. This is a job I can get behind. Truthfully, there is no greater love outside of my husband and children, than shoes. Take a peek inside my closet and you’ll know what I mean.Read More
I wasn’t in the mood this year to do a big Black Friday post; I will be honest with you. That was until I woke up this morning and saw the gigantic savings to be had. It gets better and better each year. I swear. I mean….60% off at Nordstrom. You cannot beat that!Read More
Winter is here. The first snow has fallen. My girls were thrilled as I took a deep breath and exhaled thinking about muddy boots, wet paws and all the layers we will now be forced to wear. Sorry for the melancholy. It really is very pretty. It just seems so soon!Read More
Sometimes we need a second to celebrate the ordinary, everyday moments. You know, like hi-5'ing yourself for waking up and getting dressed. Or is that just me?

Gift giving has arrived my friends! When I think of the items I use daily, the absolute necessities in life, they are often brilliant inventions that have a practical function in my life.

"Let's do beautiful work together." That's the motto of Luxily Boutique Box, a monthly subscription box filled with gorgeously curated items fit to make any female in your life special. I received my first this week and I am over the moon about how beautifully it was packaged and how unique every item was...which is different than ALL the subscription boxes out there. This one felt special. As if my bestie had hand selected each item specific to my likes and lifestyle.
The colors alone warranted an audible squeal on my part as I opened up my box!Read More
